A performance project co-created with staff and clients of Martha Whiteway Day Hospital in MISA.
Maud Hendricks and Oli Ryan of Outlandish Theatre Platform set up a Theatre Room in November 2022. In this room is a sound desk, two mics, a zoom, two speakers and two chairs. People, who are waiting appointments with the team, nurses, medical occupational therapists, psychologists, art therapists and administrative staff, are invited to have a chat in the Theatre Room. With Maud Hendricks the patients consider different Destinations, imaginary and real. Destinations of the past, present and future. We record the conversations if we feel like it. This heightens the experience. We perform our conversation to ourselves. The Project becomes a destination in and of itself.
With sound artist Oli Ryan, movement director James Hosty and performance by Maud Hendricks the sound files are recalibrated into a new destination, an interpretation of the afterlife, not in the past, not in the now, not even in the future. An in between life station, where thoughts, ideas, sounds, whispers, after thoughts, light and darkness can co-exist. A rumination space, a space to die and to be reborn.
